What's happening in cryptocurrency?

Zilliqanalysis, science on the blockchain, the Facebook lawsuit, weeks of crypto gains and IOTA as standard.



1. Moving and shaking heads

Zilliqa, one of the many "Ethereum killer" coins which has yet to kill Ethereum, has marked itself as a mover and a shaker with solid price action.

But do the technicals stack up? The answer is a hard "sorta."

2. Science... on the blockchain

Science needs more incentives to share data and a secure platform on which to share that information.

Hello, blockchain. Nice economic theory plus secure information sharing framework you have there.

3. Facebook ads are just the worst

Especially when they use your name to bilk unsuspecting victims, and Facebook does nothing but ask you to police its platform to report those ads.

Sounds like a good time for a lawsuit, but this problem goes a bit beyond Facebook alone.

4. 100% guaranteed bitcoin price prediction

The prices will continue to go up and down. You heard it here first.

Markets are feeling cautiously optimistic as the rebound pushes bitcoin to a 40 day high, but there's still a long way to go.

5. IOTA included, batteries not

Standards are important, and some big names are deciding that IOTA is a good standard.

This is no accident, no coincidence and cannot be replicated by any amount of clever marketing.
